Windows alert sound

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I purchased the fabulous product last night, however, when I attempt to run the pre flight events, a windows alert sound keeps playing every 5-7 seconds. There is no window that I can see that is displayed, and only happens upon running the pre-flight events. 

 

Any idea what could be causing this? Happening with P3Dv3. If you need any more information, let me know.

 

Kind Regards,

James Eden

Hi James,

 

I've never heard of that one before.  Are you sure the sound is not coming from the 777 itself?

Do you have FSUIPC installed ?

 

FSUIPC has a feature that will sound the windows default chime about every 5-10 seconds when vas memory becomes low. Kind of gives you a warning so you can save your flight in case of an OOM error.  There is no window that will open, just the chime.

that's  what I thought  it  was ,   seems  abit  quick  for  a oom  to occur  just  at the  start of  the flight   within the  first minute  or  so?

Thanks Rick, that'll be what it is. But I agree with Peter - OOM in the first minute or so...strange. Will keep investigating. Apologies for trying to pin the blame on FS2Crew - its the last thing I ran so thought it might have something to do with it.

Does it   happen   all the time  at different  airports   since  cant  believe   you can get  a oom within  the first minute  or  so.    Did  the  sim  crash     soon after  you  heard  the chimes  since if  it  does  than its  a  oom error

The overwhelming majority of OOM cases in FS are linked to scenery that eat up huge amounts of memory.  Some photo sceneries are especially problematic.
